Can bradycardia cause memory loss? So for instance if you had a slow heart rate yesterday that you can't remember it well the next day?

No. Extreme bradycardia (HR 3 to 5 seconds). There would be no memory loss unless you passed out, fell, and hit your head with superimposed concussion.
Would not be answer. Many normal people have slow heart rates, and unless you developed a profound heart slowing, this would not cause problems with memory. But if you fainted or had change in heart rhythm due to seizure activity, that might cause periods of amnesia. If this is repetitive, best you get this assessed.

Can a slow heart rate cause water retention? Just looking for some answers, as I have suffered for years with this problem, and know I do have a slow heart rate, also pac which they say are benign.

Generally . Generally no, as long as your heart function, specifically both the squeezing (systolic function) and relaxing (diastolic function) are normal. If those have not been evaluated previously then you can discuss getting an echocardiogram (heart ultrasound) with your doctor. There are many things that can cause leg swelling, not just heart issues, including medication side effects and vascular issues in the legs. Read more...
By itself, no... Your heart only needs to beet as fast as is needed to push the blood around while maintaining a proper pressure so the nutrients in the blood reach the tissues. However, if you have mild "congestive heart failure" with a such a rate, by definition you will retain fluid because the heart is not pushing the blood around fast enough to do its job. This does result in fluid retention. Read more...

I had an EKG and the cardiologist said I had a slow heart rate. Is this a concern? I have been taking Xanax (alprazolam) 0.25 mg for years. Can Xanax (alprazolam) do this?

How slow?? It depends "how slow" your heart rate was on the ekg. People who are very physically conditioned may have slower resting heart rates than others. Xanax (alprazolam) is not known to cause heart conduction disturbances or slow heart rate, unless perhaps anxiety-related tachycardia resolves because xanax (alprazolam) helps your anxiety. Please ask the cardiologist what s/he meant, and whether the findings are "a concern.". Read more...
Depends. Slow heart rate should be taken in context of how slow, associated symptoms, and any other abnormalities on ekg etc. Xanax (alprazolam) should not cause it. Read more...
